Talking Tom is a fully animated interactive 3D character that users can tickle, poke and play with in the apps. Users can also get Tom to repeat what they say.[3] The original Talking Tom Cat app was launched in July 2010 for iOS, closely followed by Talking Tom 2 in 2011. Users have made many videos of Tom singing popular songs. Critics have said that Tom might win The Voice one day.
